We dine here quite regularly and the food absolutely never fails! I am convinced they have some of the best chefs in the whole of Manchester. On our most recent visit each of our party started with cauliflower soup, very tasty and comforting, with a side of lovely fluffy bread - the only slight issue being the portion size, a... More

Had not been here for many years but has always had a good reputation so got a last minute booking. Food was of a very good standard and good value for money.... Nothing amazing but good quality ingredients done well. Only disappointment was the service which was a little sloppy and slapdash.... No consistency on waiter.... Long wait for drinks... More

We visited the restaurant as a family of four adults to celebrate my Mothers birthday. I had always wanted to eat here after reading some very good reviews on Trip Advisor and from personal recommendations from friends and family. Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted warmly and quickly shown to our table. The environment of the dinning area was... More

After hearing great things about the restaurant, I went with high expectations, and was not disappointed. The food was superb, the best meal I have had in a long, long time and it was presented beautifully The staff, atmosphere and wine list (which is huge; more like a bible), were brilliant. My only gripe, however, would be the menu, which... More

My husband had the Chicken Livers and Bacon to start and the Pork Belly for main, I had beetroot and feta salad to start and Salmon and crushed potatoes... More

We visited the Lime Tree yesterday after my daughter's wedding. It was a lovely day and we had drinks outside first and then went in to eat. The food was superb - so tasty and beautifully presented, and the service excellent. After we had a toast outside to the bride and groom. The staff were so helpful and couldn't do... More

We went for our wedding anniversary. We live local and know the Lime Tree to be a special occasion type of place- expensive! The food was absolutely fantastic- really, really good. However, the fantastic chefs were really let down by poor service for a restaurant charging these sorts of prices. They kind of ignored us (they didn't know it was... More

We eat here regularly, during the week mostly and occasional Sunday lunches. The food is consistently lovely and beautifully presented. Very friendly staff who will listen to any changes you might want to make to the meals. I always go for the salmon when it is on the menu because its the freshest and best i have ever tasted. Most,... More
